Compensation for Your Bus Accident Injuries and Related Expenses and Losses

Whether you were a passenger on a bus, a pedestrian, or the driver or passenger in a car, a bus accident can leave you with serious, potentially fatal, injuries. Our bus accident lawyer will help you recoup the costs of your immediate, ongoing, and future medical bills.

Additional recoverable damages include:

  • Income losses
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Property damage costs
  • Diminished property value
  • Disability and impairment
  • Wrongful death damages, if applicable

We will create a carefully detailed list of your post-accident expenses and losses before drafting and sending a demand letter on your behalf. Our goal is to avoid having your case undervalued, as we want to achieve the best possible outcome for you.

South Carolina’s Personal Injury Statutes of Limitations

The outcome of your accident and other factors determine which statute of limitations applies to your case. S.C. Ann. §15-3-530 generally allows:

  • Three years from the date of the accident to file your personal injury lawsuit
  • Three years from the date of a loved one’s demise to file your wrongful death lawsuit

In addition, if the bus involved in your accident was government-owned or operated, S.C. Ann. § 15-78-110 gives you up to two years to file a lawsuit against a municipality.

If you don’t file your lawsuit on time, you could inadvertently forfeit the right to recover compensation. When our bus accident attorney accepts your case, we work to accurately interpret and comply with the filing deadline for you.

Our Risk-Free Contingency Fee Agreement

Building a personal injury or wrongful death case can be time-consuming and involve many costs. However, when our law firm takes your case, we can cover all these expenses for you. You pay nothing up front or out of your own pocket and do not compensate us until we obtain compensation for you.
